TA: Abigail Bullard
Email: abigailrbullard@aggiemail.usu.edu
Office Hours: Thursday from 1:50pm to 2:50pm, or by appointment.
Lab Objectives:
1. Apply material learned in lecture, and learn complimentary content.
2. Better understand the planet we live on.
3. Become more scientifically literate.
Required Lab Materials: Lab manual, pencil (optional – ruler, colored pencils, hand lens,
calculator); sturdy shoes and sunscreen for field lab.
Lab Course Fee: A fee is automatically collected at the time of registration. This fee is used for
fieldtrip transportation, lab materials, and a small part of lab instructor costs.
Lab Policies:
 Be respectful of your TA and your fellow students! Arrive on time. Come prepared.
Don’t be distracted, and don’t be a distraction.
 No late work is accepted (all labs are due at the end of the lab period, unless otherwise
indicated). There are no make-up labs unless arrangements have been made in advance
with the TA. No credit for work turned in without a name.
 Failure to inform the TA of an absence in advance of the lab time will result in the
loss of a letter grade.
Grading:
 Each lab is worth 20 points and the rock & mineral exam is worth 60 points, for a total of
300 points. There is no extra credit. Starting the second week and continuing until the
exam there will be a quiz on specimen identification worth 5 of that week's points.
